Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and Time Warner Cable Inc. (TWC) have partnered to bring Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) activities to Boys & Girls Club members. Thanks to the generous support of TWC, BGCA has developed the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) STEM program for tween and teen Club members. Since most of the fastest growing jobs will require some education in STEM, the DIY STEM program will enable young people to achieve great futures by sparking interest in STEM, offering hands-on, experiential programming and providing opportunities to explore STEM careers. Through this partnership, kids will learn how to make technology—rather than just consuming it. By offering the DIY STEM program, BGCA and TWC are preparing today’s young people for successful 21st century careers.
TWC is among the largest providers of video, high-speed data and phone services in the United States, connecting more than 14 million customers to entertainment, information and each other. Launched in conjunction with President Obama’s “Educate to Innovate” campaign, TWC’s Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) is a philanthropic initiative to address America’s declining proficiency in STEM, which puts our children at risk of not competing successfully in a global economy. Using its media assets, TWC creates awareness of the issue and inspires students to develop the STEM skills they need to become the problem solvers of tomorrow. Local TWC markets are activating CAMM across the country with community-specific programs and partnerships.
